Stealth Bomber demo with Students at MHS


The Madison High School Fly Fishing and Tying Group meet for the first time yesterday. I had 7 students show up.

Spent 30 minutes of Smart Lunch teaching a group of students about fly fishing, tying, and entomology. They payed really good attention and ask relevant questions. I personally enjoyed it and plan to continue.

This the pattern I discussed and showed them.

Stealth Bomber
Here is a link to the creator, history, and tying instructions.

This pattern is awesome for smallies, largemouth and big bluegill.

Note: The eyes are soft polymer beads strung on mono and set with glue. The legs are the core of Bungee material.

Dedicated to my son. Ilove you.

Head Cement Tip:

 If you use a pen applicator for Sally Hansen as head cement and it starts thickening. Don't pitch it. Just add some fresh Sally Hansen and it will thin the whole bottle.
